Screen Capture Video Programs - Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I would like to record some videos from my computer and include live video from my screen.

 

What software have you used and what is your favourite...? I am in a Windows environment, not MAC. :blush:

 

Have any of you used any of the free software programs out there and had any success?

 

I would like to be able to add video to my website and blog.

 

I do have My Movie Move Maker but I haven't tried it out yet.

 

I am grateful for any suggestions.

 

Thank you,

Jen :)

I have been researching this also Jen. It seems like Camtasia is highly recommended but it's pricey. I checked out some of the open sourde programs and the audio was not good. CamStudio was the best of the free ones but when I tried to close it, it locked my computer up and then the program would not open again.

 

Looking forward to the responses here...

Hi Ladies, thank you very much for responding :flowers:

 

Have either of you tried Jing? I was on a webinar this afternoon and asked them what they use and they told me that most people in their office use Jing, and it's free.

 

Danielle, may I ask what you mean by getting your hands on Camtasia? Is it no longer available?

 

Jen :)

I have Jing which I have only used for screen capture but it has other options and it is free.

Jing is great for small projects. I like to use my Anymeeting account, log into it and start a conference with just me attending and screen share. They host it. If you want the ads gone, it's relatively inexpensive to get a paid account with them and it doesn't eat up your bandwidth.

I just downloaded Jing and experimented. I am impressed. Only have problem with audio quality with built in speaker and headset. I'm going to try a usb microphone as they suggest. - Karen

I was using Camtasia before but I started to like Jing..

One thing I don't like though is that Jing can't record videos more than 5 mins. I hope they will roll out more updates to this in the future.

I used to use Fraps to capture pc game footage in order to make videos but I'm not sure if it can be used for other applications. Might be worth looking into. They have a free version but the paid version is very cheap and you get access to all the updates for free, for life.

Hi Everyone - here is a link to a company that has been in this business for quite a while. The products work well and I can't believe the low price for this entire Capture suite. About $80 and they let you buy a second copy for a friend or 2nd computer for 1/2 price. I might have to buy the new one now that I've seen this!

I haven't used it in a few years but it worked very well when I tried it. Good customer service, too.
